LyricsEdit

Don't write a letter 
When you want to leave 
Don't call me at three A.M. from your friend's apartment 
I'd like to choose 
How I hear the news 
Take me to a park that's covered with trees 
Tell me on a Sunday please  

Let me down easy, no big song and dance 
No long faces, no long looks, no deep conversation 
I know the way 
I wanna spend that day  
Take me to the zoo 
With the big chimpanzees 
Tell me on a Sunday please  

Don't want to know who's to blame 
It won't help knowing 
I don't want to fight day and night 
It's bad enough that you're going 
Don't leave in silence, with no words at all 
Don't get mad and slam the door 
It's no way to end this 
I know how I 
Want you to say goodbye 
Find a circus tent with a big trapeze 
Tell me on a Sunday please 

I don't want to fight day and night 
It's bad enough that you're going 
Don't leave in silence, with no word at all 
Don't get mad and slam the door 
It's no way to end this 
I know how I 
Want you to say goodbye 

Don't run off in the pouring rain 
Don't call me as they call your plane 
Take the hurt out of all the pain 
Take me to a park that's covered with trees 
Tell me on a Sunday please
